CEO of NeXT Computer Dies

Posted on October 6, 2011

Steve Jobs was many things to many people.  He liberated the innovations of XEROX PARC and brought them to the masses through yet more innovation.  He brought style together with technology and forged an unending bond between the two.  Apple has revolutionized the world multiple times over 3 decades under his leadership, and proved that it was his leadership that made the difference when the company almost failed after his leaving.   On and on….

… but for me, I will also remember him most of all, for NeXT.

Rest in peace Steve.  We’ll miss you.  Thanks for leaving the world with a dominant OS that is UNIX based on laptops that “just work”.
